Right now, Tableau isn't able to display value/variable labels from SPSS .sav files. There are a couple workarounds you can try, though they may not be ideal for your situation:
- Rename the fields in Tableau Desktop, or
- Change the column names in SAS.
- use a calculated field with a CASE statement to create string values that can be used as Value Labels. For example:
CASE [Gender Field] WHEN 1 THEN 'MALE' WHEN 2 THEN 'FEMALE' END
Additionally, you can submit an idea in our Ideas forum and vote it up as a request to have this functionality added. I searched there a little, but didn't find a similar one.
